Toomer feels better about the NYG

Do you remember when former New York Giants receiver Amani Toomer ripped into his old team after the 2008 season? Do you remember him taking great offense when the coaching staff began to decrease the then-34-year-old’s role to make way for younger receivers? Do you remember when he said the Giants had an agenda to phase him out of the picture?

This, after a long career in which he recorded nearly 10,000 receiving yards while catching 54 touchdown passes for the New York squad. True, it wasn’t the nastiest divorce in history, but it wasn’t pleasant either. Remember?

Well, everything seems to be cool now.

“I had been with the team for 13 years,” Toomer told the New York Daily News . “If you have a 13-year relationship with anyone, the breakup is going to be bad. But cooler heads prevailed.”

Still, Toomer couldn’t help himself from ripping somebody … anybody. So, he focused on the last team for which he tried to play – the Kansas City Chiefs who cut him before the regular season began last year.

“Going from an organization like the Giants to the Chiefs, it’s a big difference,” Toomer said. “It’s like going from the varsity to the junior varsity. “

Now, for the really cool part. Toomer – who’s never participated in a race longer than 3.1 miles – will run the New York City marathon in November and start the race in last place. For every runner he passes, he will donate $1 to the New York Road Runner’s youth programs.
